man's underwear, aluminum foil, beer cans, beer bottles, batteries, bottle caps, a ladies hair band, 2 oil lamps, Styrofoam containers, crate paper, windshield wiper, spoons, bailing twine, man's handkerchief, plastic grocery bags, cardboard boxes, and paper towel by the roll! And my personal favorite, a bag of rotten sweet potatoes. Plus, they broke off one of the post that marks the site and tossed it down into the woods. I guess that wasn't enough excitement for them as they did this too......
|Can you see it right in the middle of the photo? A picnic table, thrown over this really steep hill and down into a deep raven. It landed on the tree or it would have kept going.|
|We worked so hard little Effie had to come home and take a nap in the sun. Such a life, wouldn't you like to have her life? They ride around on the golf cart and watch us "work."|
This gorgeous Magnolia Tree sits behind the office. I have never been able to take a picture of these flowers before. They remind me of Orchids. So pretty but they don't last long.
It won't be long until the Redbuds will be out, I love those trees can't wait to get pictures of them. There are little flowers coming up everywhere. After the high temperatures today I'm sure the trees will have little leaves by this weekend. But wait the high on Friday is only supposed to be 48, so back out comes the coats. :(
|This Turkey Vulture was sitting in the tree waiting for one of us to fall over today. Ha ha....we all made it!|
I don't know if the park is going to open this weekend or not. Depends if we get all the loops ready I guess. It is supposed to rain tomorrow so that will slow us down if it does.
What with the high temperatures and the cold weather coming in will probably get some severe storms.
|This little guy heard there may be rain so he was hurrying up and gathering his nuts, just in case he can't get out of his tree for a few days.|
We went for a long drive tonight on the golf cart to look for wildlife. Yep they were every where, just not where we were. Three different times we have seen the hen turkey but I have not had my camera, we have been to busy for me to take it with me all the time. But while we were driving on the far end of our loop we saw this...
|See the lake. This past weekend we could hear the big speed boats out there having fun. I didn't realize we could see the lake so well from our loop this year. I will have to go down to the beach and get a really good sunset without the trees.|
I feel really bad that I have not been keeping up reading all the blogs I used to. I try and read and comment when I can, but with all this work and trying to do my own blog I don't seem to have enough time. Once the park opens and all the clean up is over with I hope to have more time to read again. I try and read a few each night but sometimes I just can't stay awake to do so, and trying to type a comment well I end up with so many mistakes it takes me a while to do one. But just know I have not forgotten any of you.
